Booknews
A synthesis reporting of the ongoing long-term community ecology studies of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals being conducted world-wide in environments from the desert to the rainforest. The 17 papers feature studies of reef fish and those in tropical rivers, the structures and dynamics of a turtle community over a two decade period, finch communities in climatically fluctuating environments, the organization of a neotropical bat community, and the long-term response of desert rodents to natural changes. Includes graphs and tables. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
